The award provides $4,000 travel support (on a reimbursement basis) for the recipient to attend The Liver Meeting® and one additional educational meeting (subject to Committee approval) during their fellowship year. The awardee will receive an additional $26,000 in research support during the fellow’s first faculty appointment at an academic institution, paid directly to the recipient’s institution. Research funding cannot be used for salary for the awardee or to support non-research expenditures or indirect costs. The research funding is granted to the individual applicant; however, funds will be paid directly to the recipient’s institution. The research portion of the funds will transfer with the fellow to their first faculty appointment even if that is a distinct institution from his/her training institution. Changes in institution and/or mentor must be approved by AASLD Foundation. Recipients must acknowledge the award in all publications (abstracts, manuscripts, or other documents) resulting from research performed during the tenure of this award.
The recipient is encouraged to attend and present work at The Liver Meeting®. Travel-related expenses incurred to attend the 2019 Annual Meeting and one additional educational meeting (subject to committee approval; e.g. Digestive Disease Week, International Liver Congress, American Transplant Congress, or any course offered by AASLD) will be reimbursed up to $2,000 per meeting and according to guidelines provided prior to each meeting. Reimbursement funds are specifically and only available for attending the 2019 Annual Meeting and one additional educational meeting subject to committee approval; funds not used for this purpose will be forfeited and may not be used to attend other conferences that are not pre-approved by the AASLD Foundation Research Awards Committee.
